Hello all. Crazy times huh? As many theater people have experienced in the past few weeks, the Coronavirus situation took a toll last month on our opening of Puffs. While we were lucky enough to get one weekend, we sadly had to cancel our last several shows. While it’s of course disheartening that I didn’t get a full run with our new cast, I count myself very lucky to have not only gotten the show in front of some great crowds, but that I got to take the journey with so many amazing people at Wolf Pack Theatre Company.
However, bad news leaves room for good: I have a new film to share with you! Brought to you from the good people at Shrug Productions, please enjoy the full film How To Meet A Girl. This film was made for the World Film Challenge 2020 and we made it to a finalist screening, so I can’t say how proud I am of it and the crew involved. You can view it both here and on my videos page.
Hello all. As we rehearse our new version of Puffs with Wolf Pack Theatre Company, I’m happy to announce we have our tickets on sale! We open on February 27th and run for 3 weekends. If you want to come see us and give us all a big Puff Hug, you can get your tickets here. I’ll be posting more goodness as our opening draws near, but I wanted to at least share the link with everyone.
Hello friends! I’m super excited to announce that I will be returning as Wayne Hopkins in a new production of Puffs with Wolf Pack Theatre Company! I had the honor to play Wayne in the Washington DC debut of Puffs earlier this year and he’s one of my favorite characters I’ve had the privilege to inhabit. Make sure to keep posted to the site for performance dates and ticket information.
As Christmas comes just around the corner, our friends at Wolf Pack Theatre Company want you to join us for the second and final weekend of A Christmas Carol. And as an early gift to you, Thursday’s performance is pay what you can! Come with whatever you have in your pocket to enjoy our tribute to the Dickens classic. Dates are on my Calendar and you can buy tickets for our other performance dates here.
I’ve also added a few extra production photos in my Media center here. Enjoy, and hopefully I’ll see you at the show!
Hello all. Just wanted to celebrate tonight’s opening for A Christmas Carol with Wolf Pack Theatre with a production still sneak peak!
Do I sound as good as I look? You’ll have to come out for yourself to find out! Tickets are on sale at the door or here for only $10. Call it our Christmas gift to you. Hope to see you there!
Hi friends. I’m happy to announce I’ll be celebrating the holiday season this year with a new show! I’ll be joining Wolf Pack Theatre Company for the first time playing Young Scrooge in their production of A Christmas Carol! The show is perfect for all ages and audiences and will hopefully bring you a bit of Christmas cheer. We open on December 13th and run for two weekends with double shows on Saturday. Tickets can be purchased here. Hope to see you all there, and Happy Holidays to all!
Hello all. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted an update on my site here. While I have been adding a few things here and there on the site, I didn’t seem necessary to add a whole new update. But in the time since my goodbye to Bobby Heenan, I’ve been doing some film work with Shrug Productions (Extra Shiny and Buzz now available in my videos section) and was fortunate enough to be featured in the Washington DC regional premiere of Puffs with Landless Theatre Company. I’ve included new pictures, videos, reviews and other goodies that you can find in the links in the top bar. More fun stuff is in the works, so hopefully I can post more news as it comes.
Don’t worry, I’ll make sure we don’t wait such a long stretch before we see each other again.
On Sunday, the world lost the greatest manager and color commentator in the history of professional wrestling: Bobby “The Brain” Heenan. If you’ve paid attention to my Facebook or Twitter feed, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m a fan of the business. However, I can say without question that no other person in wrestling and very few in the world of comedy and acting have had as drastic an impression on my life as “The Brain”. I’ve written a new blog post (the first in years, how about that?) about just what Bobby meant to me. If you’re at all curious, or if you’re a fan of Bobby yourself, take a few minutes to give it a read here. I hope it comes off as a fitting tribute from a lowly humanoid to an icon.
Hello friends. First of all, I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who made it out to Silver Spring for our One Act Festival last weekend. We had a fantastic turn out and some very energetic crowds. Always proud and happy to perform for my friends and family. To close out the great weekend, I’m happy to share some pictures and a review from the show. First of all, here’s a few pictures that were taken by the talented Harvey Levine:
You can check out the rest of the pictures from Six Seven Three Twenty and Alternate Theory, along with pictures from all of my other shows, here on my Photos page.
I’m also proud to share a nice write-up we got from DC Metro Theater Arts for our weekend. Here’s an excerpt:
“Adam Adkins plays Mike O’Sullivan, the assistant to it seems everyone and is probably the most likable character. Adkins hits the mark by straddling the fence between Gary and Doug and the Coach.”
Not a bad little nod. Feel free to read the full review here or view the rest of my press clippings here on my site. Also, the One Act Festival continues for the next two weekends. Not with me, sadly, but with many of my friends and fellow craftspeople. Please make sure to show your love and support by planning your trip to the festival here.
So that’s all for now, my dear friends. But make sure to come back and visit soon, as art never stops coming.
Tonight is the night: The opening of my two one act plays for the Silver Spring Stage One Act Festival. For tonight’s premiere, we’re offering a Pay What You Can performance. So come on by at 8 with whatever cash you have in your pockets and see my glorious return to the stage. In Six Seven Three Twenty, we go into the draft room of a struggling football team who are in the middle of an internal power struggle. Then, in Alternate Theory, we present a new darkly hilarious theory on the assassination of JFK. Both of these shows are a lot of fun and I’m excited to get them in front of an audience.

Hope to see you all there!
